Kiwanis helps kids around the world. The Kiwanis Club of Utica-Shelby Township looks out for our community. We are generous with our time. We are creative with our ideas. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way!
Our parent organization, Kiwanis International, takes on large-scale challenges. One recent example is The Eliminate Project. Together with UNICEF, $110 million in cash and pledges was raised to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the world. Our club is one of only two worldwide that raised $200,000 toward the project.
For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things can happen.
Kiwanis empowers communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. We strive to be a positive influence in communities worldwide — so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive. Our Kiwanis club fulfills its mission of serving as we lead Kiwanis Community Service Projects, sponsor Service Leadership Clubs in local schools and universities, give scholarships though our foundation, partner with local charities, and so much more.
Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it’s located. Members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly $100 million every year for communities, families and projects. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
Our Kiwanis club focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child in our community at a time.
